And since the Southern daughter was so helpful with the terminology, I decided to recruit her to help me with the picture. I had a vision of taking a picture just as the caramel sauce was being drizzled on to the ice cream. Which was already melting. So I clearly needed reinforcements, and I have to say, she has steady hands and did a great job of Pouring Under Pressure.
This recipe is of course endlessly customizable. You can switch out the vanilla ice cream with butter pecan, or caramel. You can switch out the banana bread with chocolate cake, or little scoops of apple pie. You can switch out the caramel sauce with chocolate sauce (chocolate and bananas….mmmmmmmm!) You can leave out the walnuts, or switch them out with pecans or almonds or raisins or chocolate chips. But if you have some banana bread lurking around, I highly recommend this combo.
In either a shot glass or a shooter glass…your choice! I hope this has been as educational for you as it was for me.
I didn't include ingredient amounts because this recipe can make as many servings as you have shooter glasses! Or shot glasses. Or shooter...oh, never mind.
